Numerical Innovations - CAD CAM for EE

They develop software tools which are of great interest to designers of PCB, Microwave/RF, MEMS, IC, chemically milled parts and optical components.

Numerical Innovations - CAD CAM for EE

"AutoGERB (world's first exporting of Gerber data directly from AutoCAD) and CAMtastic! (a CAM viewer which morphed into the first PCB DFM tool of its kind). They were the first in the industry to do some “cutting-edge” marketing by offering their products to be downloaded directly from the Web with a full 45 day trial.."

EasyGerb - Numerical Innovations

EasyGerb 4 is perfect for AutoCAD users looking for the easiest & most powerful way to output gerber files from their AutoCAD drawings.

Very-large-scale integration

Very-large-scale integration

Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) is the process of creating integrated circuits by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. VLSI began in the 1970s when complex semiconductor and communication technologies were being developed. The microprocessor is a VLSI device.


Current information on Embedded Systems for uC and ASIC Designers. Inside DSP - signal processing monthly. BDTI's Pocket Guide - guide to processing engines for embedded applications covers DSP processors, CPUs, microcontrollers, and FPGAs. DSP Dictionary too.

Berkeley Design Technology, Inc. -- Free Information


DSP Basics course online course which is free. Developed in 1998 it is light-weight but a valuable start for people new to DSP or in need of a refresher

Johns Hopkins University Signals Systems Control

The Scientist and Engineer's Guide to Digital Signal Processing By Steven W. Smith, Ph.D. - Free DSP Book

Tutorials in Communications Engineering

"This website offers tutorials I have written on various topics in analog and digital communications that will help you cut through this complexity. I keep adding to this collection, albeit very slowly."

Charan Langton

The Java- Digital Signal Processing (J-DSP) editor is an Internet based signal processing laboratory that provides hands-on learning experiences in distributed learning environments

This site provides the current version of the book Introduction to Statistical Signal Processing by R.M. Gray and L.D. Davisson

DSPRelated.com since 1999, popular independent internet resource for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) engineers.

Prosig Noise & Vibration Measurement Blog

This tutorial with Java Applets is good to start with for DSP learning. DSP is a part of Embedded Processing. Also where Real Time Analog Meets Digital. Not that you will need DSP for everything. Simple equations can be implemented without DSP, but is an entry into the DSP world.

When complex waveforms in Audio / Video needs to be synthesized / manipulated. RF Communication related calculations too. More power and focus on math and speed makes dedicated DSP devices / software / specialization inevitable.
